Hoboken has (some) parks!
Oh my god.
As I was taking a brief 20-minute power-nap the other day, I had this horrific nightmare: People living in Hoboken didn’t know we actually had a few parks in town!
You know, the ones where you can lay out, toss a Frisbee 30 feet, walk with your strollers along the water, etc. Then, my dream got even worse. All Hoboken residents suffered from “Park Amnesia” and needed to be constantly reminded that yes, we have parks.. and it’s my job to show you what they look like!
Startled awake in a panicked sweat, I had to, HAD TO perform my duty and take pictures of these precious parks! What in god’s name would people do without Hoboken411 reminding them?
So look carefully, and try to memorize these pictures, and where these parks are.
Gosh, I hope this isn’t a recurring nightmare.
The famous Pier A Park
Don’t you dare ever forget we have a Pier A Park! Movies, sunbathers, people fishing, walking, running, etc. Hard to believe, but true. Amazing, eh?

(Important Hoboken Park Reminders, continued…)
Maxwell Place Park
This is an important multi-function park. With a bit of open space, fenced in grassy areas, and even a miniature beach!
Stevens Park is a rather small and boring park, but it contains a smidge of green grass, a dog run, some playground equipment, pathways and benches. A nice spot to finish up your iced coffee or have a smoke. Lots of shade.
Elysian Park is one of my favorites. The back area is one of the best areas to relax. A big dog run, basketball court and kiddie area make it a great place for people of all ages. People forget it’s here, no doubt about it…
Pier C Park
Rest assured, you will not be required to memorize this one. It hasn’t been finished yet. But time will come!
